Visit the RFT restaurant page late tomorrow afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to see what I think.The rabbit leg "daube" was the most appealing dish on the menu of Mosaic Bistro Market. Thumper is largely absent from St. Louis restaurants, and this preparation promised braised bunny with the intriguing addition of merguez sausage. I ordered it only to learn that it was gone -- not sold out, but off the menu entirely.
"We need to reprint the menu," our server said by way of apology.
The new document will be difficult to fault. True to the restaurant's name, it will offer exactly what the average diner likely envisions when the word "bistro" appears: a decent steak and a braised lamb shank, plates of cheese and charcuterie and bowls of mussels. Does the late-autumn menu include butternut squash soup? But of course!
